Shattered Haven 1.002 "Mind The Gap!" Released!
« on: March 21, 2013, 12:57:20 PM »
Original: http://arcengames.blogspot.com/2013/03/shattered-haven-1002-mind-gap-released.html

This one has a litany of small fixes and tweaks, and a couple of cool new features.

First off, when you're walking you no longer fall into pits or water.  Handy when you're navigating tight ledges while not being pursued by angry grays

Secondly, when you scroll through items in your inventory, it now shows popup text at the top of the screen to remind you what the function of that tool or weapon is.  This is really useful for people who don't already have the game's many weapons and tools fully memorized -- saves the steps of going into the encylopedia.

Thirdly, whenever any new encyclopedia entry is unlocked, the encyclopedia now opens directly to that entry when you next open it.  That saves you time hunting through the categories.

Shattered Haven is something that people who are playing it really seem to love, but we're really having trouble getting the word out.  If you play it and love it, please spread the word!  We can use all the help we can get.  A huge thanks to all of you who have already done so.

Enjoy!

This is a standard update that you can download through the  in-game updater itself, if you already have any version of the game.  When you  launch the game, hit the big "Play" button and then you'll see the notice of the update having been found if you're connected to the Internet at the time.

Nice update (especially the walking bit - I really hoped you would do this = ))!

I recommended the game on Steam and wrote a review on Metacritic, but aside from that there is not much I can do I am afraid =  /. I would post this on Twitter, but there seems to be no one following me = P.

I really hope this game really lifts up for you. It is simply awesome...

I appreciate it -- every bit helps! We have had such a positive reaction to this game from all quarters that its really astonishing the level of sales being so low. We're seeing a lot of responsiveness from the press, though, and hopefully that will result in a lot of actual reviews rather than it just silently falling off plates. I'm going to do a couple of more lets plays, too, since people seem confused about what it is still.

Qft.

Also, thank you for getting rid of the falling-into-water bit, that was starting to annoy me :P

You can still fall into water, just not when you're walking slowly. :)
